Filmmaker Beth B (Two Small Bodies, Salvation!, Vortex) delivers the first career-spanning documentary retrospective of Lydia Lunch’s confrontational, acerbic and always electric artistry. As New York City’s preeminent No Wave icon from the late ‘70s, Lunch has forged a lifetime of music and spoken word performance devoted to the utter right of any woman to indulge, seek pleasure, and to raise voice in a rage as loud as any man. Lydia Lunch is the psycho-sexual transgressive who revoked patriarchal expectations of what a female performer might mean, while forging a vocabulary of rare emotional honesty, philosophy and humor. Includes interviews with Lunch and longtime collaborators and colleagues including: Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth; performance artist Kembra Pfahler; Teenage Jesus bass player Jim Sclavunos; Donita Sparks from L7; famed DJ and musician Nicolas Jaar; art critic Carlo McCormick; filmmaker Richard Kern and a long list of other groundbreaking artists connected to Lunch’s past and present. The film is not only about Lunch, but about the scene that she helped spawn, continues to grow and influence, and the creative people who join her in creating a new vision of woman.
